If you’ve never listened to This American Life these episodes are a good place to start: The Breakup actually made me appreciate Phil Collins; 20 Acts in 60 Minutes was the first episode I ever listened to and I’ve been a die hard fan ever since; Superpowers, Invisible Man vs. Hawkman is great (and for the record, I would pick invisibility); What is this thing? features a story about “the greatest love story of the 21st century” and will make a Sarah Vowell fan for life. View from the other half is a great story too.; Switched at Birth is unbelievable, but be prepared to cry and/or get more than a little angry.
Happy listening. What’s your favorite episode?
